Information for Environmental Science and Policy Majors


The undergraduate degree in Environmental Science and Policy (ESP) is a Bachelor of Science degree. This unique interdisciplinary program incorporates courses from various colleges across the University. Although there are courses in the core of ESP, the degree also offers students the opportunity to choose an area of concentration.

The curriculum has two sub concentrations, one in environmental science and one in environmental policy. Students in both concentrations take supporting courses in physical and natural science, statistics, policy, and ethics. In addition, students select electives to strengthen their knowledge within their concentration. Seniors complete a research project or perform an internship in one of a variety of government agencies or private companies.
